Sleep with giraffes and rhinos at new Midlands safari lodges – now open for 2022 bookings – The Sun

A SAFARI lodge where families can get up close to exotic animals has announced there will be some new additions to the family.

The West Midland Safari Park will add eight new suites to its collection, with views of giraffes and white rhinos.

When the park opened in the summer, it had eight lodges – six in the elephant park and two near the cheetahs. It also had two cottages in the red panda park.

In April 2022, the park will open eight new lodges. Four of them will be in the giraffe park and four in the rhino park.

The park has also announced it has submitted plans to offer luxury overnight stays with Sumatran tigers, so tiger lodges could be on the cards soon.

Bookings are now open for the new giraffe and rhino lodges, and there is still availability in both within the first two months of opening.

Inside each lodge, which can welcome up to five guests, are open-plan living rooms as well as outdoor seating areas and balconies.

A king-size bedroom will be on the lower floor while the upper floor can sleep up to three people, with options to add a cot.

On-site chefs can even prepare your dinner and deliver it to your room, while breakfast is also delivered so you can have amazing views while eating.

Other extras include free parking, 24-hour concierge service and free WiFi, and a stay at the lodges also includes admission to the park and wristbands for the rides at the theme park.

Prices start from £147 per child, per night, and £171 per adult.
